Dare 2 Dream
A member of Advance Trust
"There are very positive and trusting relationships between staff, leaders and pupils."
"The staff provide a rich variety of lessons, subjects, topics and extra-curricular activities and visits that also reflect core British values of respect,
tolerance and understanding of different faiths, cultures and customs."
Riversides School is a small school for pupils with a statement of Special Educational Needs for Social, Emotional and Mental Health difficulties, located on two sites in Worcester.
Our students have the opportunity to progress in a welcoming and caring environment. This progress is supported by the hard work and commitment of well qualified staff who set high expectations to enable every child to succeed.
The school's ethos of "Dare2Dream" is an opportunity for all students with a variety of needs to be encouraged to set high standards, goals and aspirations for themselves in order to prepare themselves for adult life.
We passionately believe in the potential of every student and are focused on enabling young people to flourish in an ever changing world. Our students experience a wide range of engaging, relevant and inspirational learning activities; both in and out of the classroom.
As a school, we strongly believe in partnerships working together in the best interests of all our students. Parents/carers, students, staff, governors, community groups, support agencies and friends all work together to ensure that the pupils in our school enjoy the learning journey and achieve good outcomes.
We aim to unlock each student's potential by continually challenging them and supporting their needs by developing an interest in learning.
I hope that this website gives you a brief insight into our school and why we are so proud to help develop the futures of our students.
